A spokesperson for the Insolvency Service said: “We can confirm the Insolvency Service has written to Dominic Chappell and three other former directors of BHS and connected companies informing them that we intend to bring proceedings to have them disqualified from running or controlling companies for periods up to 15 years.
“We can also confirm that we have written to Sir Philip Green, also a former director of BHS, informing him that we do not currently intend to bring disqualification proceedings against him.”
Chappell was ordered to pay £87,170 in fines and court fees after he was found guilty of failing to provide pensions information to The Pensions Regulator (TPR).
In January 2018, the one-time BHS owner was found guilty of failing to provide information about the company’s pension scheme after it went into administration in 2016.
At the time Judge Lucie said: “The court must send a message to those in senior positions that refusal to answer questions under Section 72 will not be tolerated. The law is there for a purpose and it must be enforced. There is a complete lack of remorse on Mr Chappell’s part.”
